Not all paint is the same. Our commitment to quality means that we only carry the best; that’s why we began a partnership with Benjamin Moore Paints in 1977. Since 1883, Benjamin Moore has been continuously breaking new ground in paint technology, staying ahead of trends and setting the standard for innovation and quality in the paint industry.
Our experts at Brinkmann’s in Long Island are highly trained to all of the ins and outs of Benjamin Moore paints. From preparation to application, we can help you find the right product in the perfect color that will work for you and stand the test of time.

Painting is one of the most effective and affordable ways to renovate your home, and there’s no brand as trusted (or with as many color options) as Benjamin Moore & Co. Since 1883, Benjamin Moore has produced the highest-quality paints and finishes in the industry and Brinkmann’s is proud to be one of the company’s authorized retailers.
We carry the largest selection of Benjamin Moore paints and stains on Long Island. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is on hand to offer expert advice on custom color matching and textures to help you achieve beautiful, lasting results.
Color and Stain Selection
Start by looking at in-store color swatches, then test it with a paint sample. At Brinkmann’s, we can send you home with paint samples in your selected colors that you can apply in a small test patch. Consider how the colors look in different lighting and work with your décor before making your final decision. If you need help selecting the right Benjamin Moore paint colors, our staff can also lend their expertise.
Before you actually get to the painting, you’ll want to make sure you have all the necessary tools and materials to get the job done right. At Brinkmann’s Hardware, we can provide a variety of paints, primers, paint trays, brushes, rollers, painter’s tape, and other painting supplies at competitive prices.
Prepare the walls by properly cleaning them, filling any holes, and scraping away flaking paint. Any residual stains from water or smoke damage can be covered later by a high-quality oil-based primer. When the walls are clean, tape off the edges of any lights, door frames, or other items you don’t want painted with painter’s tape.
Start by applying an appropriate primer for your walls (Brinkmann’s staff can help you select a primer for your project if you need assistance). Once the primer is dry, begin applying your selected paint color with an angled brush at the corners of the room. Next, paint around the taped-off edges and along trim with a small brush.
Start filling in the walls with the paint roller. By moving the roller in the shape of the letter “W” up and down the walls, you can reduce the number of times you lift the roller, creating a seamless, smooth result. Allow this first coat to dry, then apply additional coats as needed to achieve the desired look.
